Christmas Preparations!

It's getting closer and closer!
I've been trying really hard this year to decorate in a simple, but very festive way.
We don't have a lot of space in our apartment, so Jeremie and I chose only a few Christmas items to display this year.
I love my wreath, it's so pretty and natural - my Father actually pulled off a bunch of wild grape vine and wound this for me.
(Don't feel too bad for the grapes, we have so much of it, it chokes out the trees!)
I absolutely love it.

Somehow, and I'm still not quite sure how; I was talked into getting a fake tree.
Jeremie likes how easy a fake tree it, there's little mess, no watering, it fits in small spaces, so I suppose it's a wise decision. 
If only they smelled as nice as a real tree. 
However, when all was said and done, I still like our little fake tree.

I was given for a few years running, parts of the WillowTree Nativity set.
Some people can't get past the fact that the figures have no faces, but that's what I find so endearing.
The body language is so lovely, that all the expression you need is right there.
I have it in my entertainment unit, and is visible as soon as you walk through the door; a good reminder of the reason for the season. 

Apart from that, just a few candles, some Christmas cards is all that is displayed.
This is very 'toned down' for me, as usually I decorate everything to the nines with Christmas stuff.
All in all though, I really am enjoying  my simple little Christmas. 

Merry Christmas friends!
